The Super Committee itself is unconstitutional, and its members have a unbroken record of violating the Constitution. So does the White House.] Yahoo 2011 Aug 12 (Cached)

US: A new Jobs Super Committee is proposed to solve unemployment. This is inspired by the new Super Congress created last week to solve the debt crisis.

Also, you can be sure that Soros did not get rid of all his gold.] MarketWatch 2011 Aug 10 (Cached)
